A prison escapee managed to become an Internet legend by making the most epic truck jump ever seen in a police chase.
The action began after a deputy pulled over the driver of a Toyota Tacoma speeding on U.S. Highway 371 in Webster Parish, Louisiana. While the two were talking outside the pickup that had recently been reported stolen, Kevonte Dekorey Austin, 18, the truck’s passenger and an escaped work-release participant jumped into the driver’s seat and took off. Ironically enough, Austin was in jail for car theft and a probation violation.
The ensuing chase reached speeds of 115 miles per hour before Austin encountered a police barricade. Unfazed, he proceeded to take the Tacoma off-road and then off the ground when the truck hit the embankment of the ditch and jumped over a 10ft high fence. After a 70 feet jump, the Tacoma landed on a Toyota Corolla parked at a restaurant.
Luckily, both Austin and a woman sitting in the Corolla survived the epic Toyota on Toyota violence unscathed.
